Answer: This is a selected form of hypoestes, an almost shrubby perennial from the tropics that can grow to two feet. It is quite an easy houseplant and can also be grown outdoors in semishade or shade for the summer. As a houseplant it does well in average household temperatures with moderate to bright light and average moisture, fertilize as needed with a water soluble fertilizer for foliage plants. You may trim it as needed to maintain a shape you like, and it will be denser if you do it about once a year. Eventually it will bloom, but the flowers are very small.
